Growing up, were you ever told, especially from your parents, that you should learn from your mistakes? Well, they were 100% right. When we have a fear of failure and strive for perfectionism, we don’t learn nearly as much.
The crucial difference is when you keep repeating the same mistake and thus not learning a thing. So take making mistakes as a learning opportunity to try something new, find a creative way to problem solve, model behavior, etc. But always, always learn. The something new doesn’t have to be monumental; it can be a small tweak that delivers a different outcome. Then learn from that tweak. Rinse & repeat!
Or, accept that your employees will make mistakes, just be sure to teach them how not make it again.

If at first you don’t succeed, then try again. If you get the same outcome, it’s time to look at the solution (or the problem) from a different vantage point and try something new.
